Melty Cheddar, Apple and Potato Gratin

January 1, 2014

This crispy-on-top, creamy gratin recipe is really clever — it combines apple (pomme in French), with potato (pomme de terre, or earth apple). In this recipe from Neighbor Food, you get multiple layers of the two tender “apples,” mingling with gooey cheddar cheese, nutmeg and cubes of salty prosciutto.
